E31A E39DI News 6 May 2017

E39DI activity from Dahlak Island postponed.

E39DI postponed
Our E3 DXpedition Team will go to Dahlak Archipelago as planned, but the stay there will be shortened due to a strong suggestion by the Eritrean Government. Hence, very unfortunately, we may not have sufficient time to operate from there this time. Instead we will do research on how we can operate next time, most probably in the fall of this year, studying the terrain, facilities available, accessibility and so on. We also hope the condition will become better in the autumn. So your understanding will be highly appreciated. Please note E31A operation will be conducted from Asmara as scheduled (May 19-29).
